pretermitted heir - Legal Definition
heir who was born after a decedent’s will was drafted, but before the death of
same. Because that heir was not alive for and is as a result unmentioned by the
will, she generally would take nothing under the will; however, most states
have laws allowing a pretermitted heir of the decedent to take whatever a
child’s share would have been had the decedent died intestate.
